Nice Thing About Spring Snow Is It Melts Fast

There's still a little snow on the ground at my house in St. Albans, Vermont this morning, two days after a mid-April dump of 3.5 inches of new powder interrupted spring.
By late Thursday, only a little bit of the snow that fell
Tuesday night remained in my St Albans, Vermont yard.

But the rest will go today amid temperatures in the low 50s. The nice thing about spring snow is it melts fast under a strong sun.

To demonstrate, here's a cool time lapse video taken in April 2013 in Northfield, Minn. It shows 10 inches of April snow disappearing in 72 hours.

So, for areas of Minnesota and Wisconsin that got anywhere from six up to 20 inches of snow yesterday, there's hope spring will return.

Just watch the video:
